My favorite destination is: the Smokey Mountains. There are breathtaking views and beautiful hiking trails.
I knew I wanted to become a physician: at an early age. A little guidance from my grandmother helped me make my career choice.

One of the challenges of my career that I enjoy is: that every child is different, and every treatment plan has to be unique to fit the needs of each child.
My personal health goal is: to exercise five to six days a week.
